New cascade designs

A new design of Sea Trout and Salmon patterns designed for Uist and Currane.
This is by modifying the barbless heavy weight buzzer hook.
This done by applying pliers to the main body of the hook to slightly straighten it, enabling you to dress patterns such as cascades.
Below is just some tied up for fishing this year.
These can by tied on size 8 or 10 Heavy weight barbless buzzer hooks and really look the business.
If you visit Finneys flies.com these hooks are available on offer for only £7.00 per 100 instead of shop prices of £4.00 per 25 a massive saving for any budding fly tyer.
All the range of hooks from heavy weight  barbed and barbless are also at the same price for the next 2 months.
Enjoy your wrapping.

A few more patterns tied up this year for the web site, these are proving to be more popular than i thought.














The Mayfly Nymph

This is my version of tying up the Mayfly nymph, which has worked well for me over many years.
In a larger size using a deep water nymph hook size 2 or 4 it was tested out for me by a good friend who visited Argentina last year and had quite a few fish using it.
So why not look at the video and have a go at tying 1or 2 up.
Let me know how you get on or if you have any requests on patterns drop me a line and i will see if i can get a video done for you.
Happy wrappings
